AN OVERVIEW

It’s never too early to start dreaming about a career in STEM; creating, designing and building the machines of the future. Our STEM ambassadors are out in the community, spending time in schools and colleges, inspiring the next generation and their parents, carers and teachers. Children as young as 14 are invited to join us for a weeks work experience for an insight into the amazing array of opportunities our industry offers.

CAREER PATHWAYS

Inspiring the next generation about Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics is something we take very seriously at JCB, and the STEM ambassadors help light a spark in the engineers and designers of the future.

Our STEM ambassadors visit schools and colleges, helping to spread the word about the potential opportunities that the world of STEM can open up. This could take the form of educational activities like building diggers with primary school children or attending careers fairs to engage directly with students who are actively making decisions about their careers.

By doing this, we will help to overcome the shortage of key STEM skills currently facing the industry.

WOMEN IN ENGINEERING

Only 16.5% of the people currently working in engineering in the UK are female. We know that to continue to achieve at the highest level as an organisation, we need the best and brightest minds now and in future. We’re setting out to redress the balance and make our workplaces inclusive and welcoming for everyone. At JCB, you’ll find women working at every level and in every team. Our women in engineering initiative aims to bring more female apprentices into our organisation to make sure that this is always the case.

WORK EXPERIENCE

We offer a weeks work experience specifically designed for students aged 14-18 where they can do a placement in the department which interests them most. Alternatively, university students aged 18 and over can do a week-long placement, taking part in activities which they may not be able to in a university setting, picking up new skills along the way and making themselves more attractive to future employers.
